This week features the U16 team of 1990. They were a continuation of the victorious Féile All-Ireland winners of 1988. After being so close on four occasions, Lismore GAA Club fulfilled one of their greatest ambitions at St. Brendan's Park, Birr on 26th June 1988. That morning they marched proudly in the parade and later went into action against Ferbane, a formidable team in their own right, fighting for the same honour. Lismore ran out deserved victors and reports from that day suggested that "when the final whistle blew everybody connected with the Lismore and Ballysaggart clubs went wild with delight". The Canon Fogarty Trophy was presented to Lismore's captain Paddy O' Donnell by GAA President John Dowling. In 1990, they took the Western title for the eighth successive year when they beat Dungarvan 1-04 to 1-03. The county title was an easier affair when they accounted for St. Saviours 1-11 to 0-03. Next week we look at the Minor team of 1990.
The U16 panel of 1990 was: Brendan Ormonde, John Roche, Philip Hickey, Peter Barry, Aidan Ormonde, Mark Clancy, James O' Connor, Paddy O' Donnell (Capt), Robert O' Sullivan, Emmet Quann, Michael Veale, Oliver O' Dowd, Seamus Clancy, David Nugent, Michael Daly, Dan Shanahan, Shane Fennessy, Seamus Kearney, Michael Kearney, Brian Quinn, Bobby Nugent, Maurice O' Connor, Eugene O' Brien, David Bennett.
